Well done Diggory! Anytime someone can make an anti hunting jackass look like an idiot, in my book, is a job well done and you certainly did so.

Why oh why did we ever let Piers Morgan back into the U.K. couldn't you have kept him over your side?

Diggory, looking forward to the hammer gun book. Lagopus.....

First, great job, Mr Hadoke! Truly fine representation for us all.

Next, I suggest all from our side use this as a training film for these types of encounters. Their argument is almost always based on emotions and often get charged. Our greater strength is remaining calm and defeating rhetoric with fact and figures. My only criticism of Mr Hadoke's presentation is not stating facts for what "we all know", which makes our side susceptible to fact checking and greater criticism. As a group we, all hunters and shooters, really must all band together to fund studies, gather information that supports our arguments and inform our members so as to educate the upcoming generation and defeat the antis.

Again, thank you Mr Hadoke for all that you've done to support our sport!

Let me add my congratulations to Mr. Hadoke for the excellent showing he made in the interview with the anti-gun zealot, Morgan.

I also eagerly await publication of the Hammer-gun book...Geo

Yes, Congrats to Mr. Hadoke for handling the interview in such a great manner!

What I don't get is why Morgan kept repeatedly saying "rich American hunters." It's as if he was wanting to make this a USA issue. I am certainly glad Morgan is no longer on American airwaves.

Looking forward to Mr. Hadoke's new book.

That's what stuck with me, too. The man was essentially a "rich American" himself until the UK took him back.

He also seems to have something against dentists, but that joke is too cheap and easy even for me.

You might enjoy my reading of some of the sillier hate mail messages I got as a result of the interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErnW5TLLflM

To the point replies, Dig. Very well done with the right mixture of seriousness and combativeness on your part.

Great hate mail link Dig. Though you take to it naturally, it couldn't have been easy to step into that interview show. Good for you for taking the high road, hunters in general probably need to figure out an effective solution for the low road.

Great job Diggory. Thank you for taking the time to defend our sport and for sharing this with us.

I got a particular kick out of the lewd, vicious, and threatening comments you got after your interview with Piers Morgan. I've gotten similar letters, hand delivered to my mailbox after answering anti-gunners and anti-hunters in letters to the editor. It all kind of knocks the wind out of the sails of those here who naively think and say that confronting the anti-gunners and anti-hunters in our midst will somehow turn off those who already hate us.

A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
